A Kennewick police officer had a close call Wednesday morning when his motorcycle was hit by a car.

Luckily he wasn’t riding it.

The officer had pulled a car over along Columbia Center Boulevard near Seventh Avenue.

And he was standing on the sidewalk when a woman driving another car slammed into the motorcycle.

Medics were called to check out everyone involved, including a baby in one of the cars, according to initial reports. No one was hurt.
